Arsene Wenger has been asked about Alexis at every press conference he’s attended during our tour, and it was no different when he faced the media after our 3-0 defeat to Chelsea.
Here’s what the boss said about our Chilean striker, plus the possibility of playing a 39th Premier League game each season outside the UK.
on Alexis being linked with PSG…
It’s only media imagination. No, it doesn’t make any difference [if it’s a foreign club that wants to sign him].
on a potential 39th game in Asia…
I think it will happen one day, why not? If we don’t do it then somebody else will do it. That idea is in the air in France or Spain and certainly we could see it happen in the future, that some countries export some games. At the moment it doesn’t look realistic, in the next two or three years, but why not in the future?
